Kids of all ages- including the adult ones too, love caramel apples during the fall season. Whether you get yours from the fair or you like them for your Halloween party, traditional caramel apples are a simple treat that are fun and easy to make.
*Chopped nuts (optional)
*1/2 tbs butter
Turn the stove on medium and heat the butter and unwrapped caramel candies in the large saucepan. You want to make sure that you fill the pot at least half way full of caramel so that your apples will be covered evenly.
Skewer the apples right through the place in the top where the stem comes out. Don’t completely skewer the apples so that you poke through the other side, just enough so the pointy part rests in the core.
Set out your wax paper on a flat surface. Sprinkle it with the chopped if you have chosen to use them. I use peanuts.
Dip your apples in the melted caramel at least half way. Don’t swirl your apple around in the caramel, just dip it in straight down and up again. Let some of the caramel drip off before moving it away from the saucepan.
Roll the still warm caramel apple in the chopped nuts. Sit upright on the wax paper so that the caramel and nuts will solidify. Once you have dipped and rolled all of your apples, place them in the fridge for better keeping so that your apples will not brown.
